Services for Individuals with Disabilities

If a disability prevents you from dialing Local or Regional (intraLATA) telephone calls yourself, you may be exempt from the added cost of having an Operator dial calls for you. If a disability makes it impossible for you to look up numbers in the telephone book, you may be eligible for exemptions from local Directory Assistance charges.

 

Customers with disabilities are encouraged to identify themselves so they can be informed of their rights, as appropriate to their circumstances.
